Evil Isolation – Galatians 4:17

They are enthusiastic about you, but not for any good. Instead, they want to isolate you so you will be enthusiastic about them.

An enemy (and THE enemy) always seeks to isolate an individual for their own selfish purposes. Isolation very obviously separates and an enemy seeks to separate his prey from those who speak truth and life so that he can take advantage and use the isolated one for his own benefit. It’s a principle of manipulative, evil people.

Christians seek communion and community with God and with others. This communion protects us from the voices of isolation that seek to manipulate and destroy us. The community of faith guided by an honest allegiance to the Word Of God is essential in the life of a believer. It protects us from these isolating voices of evil and releases the Spirit of God within us. Through His Spirit we are being built into a spiritual household not an isolated collection of individuals.

Christ Jesus bore us into the church for His purposes and our benefit. Being saved means being in community. It is not optional. Isolated individualism is of the enemy. Community is of God. Be the church.
